Julie Kearns is the fierce founder of Junket: Tossed & Found, a retail and online store offering ethically sourced secondhand goods including vintage jewelry and accessories, office supplies, sewing notions and unique, one-of-a-kind odds and ends. Julie discovered a love for thrifting during a difficult time in her life. She needed new clothes on a tight budget—she’d lost a significant amount of weight following the birth of her baby and her husband left their marriage. She continued to thrift as her needs evolved and was energized by doing something positive for the planet. She soon discovered she could make a business of it as she found things of value to resell. Julie founded Junket: Tossed & Found in late 2012 and now occupies 3,000 square feet of retail space in Minneapolis.
